I started to write an "i'm quitting my blog" post but then reconsidered. I don't really want to quit; I just want to not feeling a weird nagging guilt about posting once every 6 weeks. 8-12 posts a year is better than nothing, right? So here's my check-in for the moment.
This is what things looked like for us in April:
I've been reading a lot, baking bread, volunteering at David's school. (That last picture is from his elementary school, there's a whole rainbow of self-portraits in the hallway and I about lost my mind with how awesome an idea it was.) I'm also actually keeping my house decently clean for the first time in my adult life, thanks to this checklist from Real Simple. My phone died and I didn't get a new one for a month, which was partially inconvenient but also good for my compulsive technology behaviors. And let's be honest, probably helped with the whole "keeping my house cleaner" thing too.
My current personal goals are pretty small... I'm letting art journalling go for a bit to clear up room for some other things. I want to get better about writing letters. I have a few zines brewing again. And we're all gearing up for summer, which is coming sooner than I have a grasp of. That's it for now.
What's up with you?
